The President Of Ghana Grants Music Icon Stevie Wonder Citizenship

The legendary musician Stevie Wonder is now a citizen of Ghana.

The music icon received Ghanaian citizenship from President Nana Addo Akufo-Addo on Tuesday, and he announced the news on his official X account. He claimed that his choice to become a citizen of Ghana is evidence of his great regard and appreciation for the principles, history, and culture of the country.

The president’s post read, “In conferring Ghanaian citizenship upon Stevie Wonder, we not only extend our warmest embrace to a beloved son of Africa, but also reaffirm our belief in the enduring spirit of Pan-Africanism and the global African family, and the boundless potential of our continent and all its descendants.”

A statement from the nation’s presidential website read:

It read, “The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has conferred Ghanaian citizenship upon the legendary musician, humanitarian, and global icon, Stevland Hardaway Morris, popularly known as Stevie Wonder.

“This conferment, according to President Akufo-Addo, not only recognises his immense talent and achievements but also acknowledges his deep connection to the African continent and his tireless efforts to promote unity, solidarity, and cultural exchanges among all peoples of African descent.”

Referring to his recent citizenship as an eminent embodiment of the objectives of the Year of Return, a celebration held in 2019 to establish a link between African Americans across the Atlantic, he urged everyone to “take inspiration from his legacy and strive to build a future where creativity is valued.”

Congratulations on becoming a citizen! This is a monumental achievement. Wishing you all the best as you embark on this new chapter of your life. Cheers to your success!

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️
